It’s the epic 500th episode recording and we do it live with an audience at The Hourglass Tavern (373 w. 46th St.) in New York City! We’ve sang for years and have teased a musical since 2005…and this will be the closest you’ll get. Many a musical number and so many special guests! Michael Emerson (Person of Interest, Lost), Carrie Preston (True Blood, The Good Wife), Veronica Taylor (Pokemon), Kevin Maguire (Justice League), ChrisCross (Bloodshot, Katana), Rafael Kayanan (NCIS: LA, Conan), Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante), Michelle Mozes (Blue Streak), Qui Nguyen (Vampire Cowboys Theatre Co.), and Heidi MacDonald (The Beat). News includes: lightsabers are going to be real, Marvel teases many new titles to be announced at NYCC, DC based TV shows Gotham andConstantine are on the way and Dynamite Entertainment launches toys/games line. The CNI chorus (Patrick Garrigan, Salli Garrigan, Amy Wolk, Kristen French and Erick Pinnick) opens the show with a rocking tune. Jimmy and Kristen sing a duet as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, a special voice mail from Avengers 2, and Jimmy almost spoils Breaking Bad in song. Many thanks to the rotating co-hosts Erica Schultz (the Podcast Wife), Emily Edwards and Kristin Garay. Of course, none of this would be possible without Producer Joe Gonzalez running everything. As always, listener feedback, Top 3 and more. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!

It’s the epic 400th episode recording! Recorded live at Hourglass Tavern in midtown Manhattan. Jimmy is joined by frequent co-hosts Kevin Conn, Grace Helbig and Jon Hoche! Producer Joe is on the mixer/tech and made sure everything ran smoothly. So many great guests joined in the fun including Paul Pope, Kevin Maguire, Ben Templesmith, ChrisCross, Becky Cloonan,  Ben McCool, Emma Hayley, Dr. Vasilis Pozios and “Alan Moore” even showed up. There was news, reviews, songs and all sorts of silliness. And oh yes…we drank! Thanks to Kasha  for photography, Brad for video, Producer Joe for producing, and to Beth and Josh at Hourglass for putting up with us. Also, a big thanks to show sponsors Heidi MacDonald of The Beat and Ryan Swearingen of Stated Magazine for chatting with us for  a few minutes as well. CNI and The Beat had a big announcement too!

Jimmy flies solo since he has the plague and doesn’t want to infect any visitors. He talks about being introduced to the awesome artist ChrisCross, Steve Rude’s recent troubles, no more Cloak and Dagger, and the new animated series Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness.  News includes: Marvel will finish The Twelve, Marvel cancels some series, Brian K. Vaughan to adapt Stephen King work for Showtime, truck full of comics is stolen, PC version of Arkham City game is coming, die as a “Redshirt” in an IDW Star Trek comic, and a Star Wars fan has the weirdest photoshoot ever.
